"My house was listed with an agent for 4 months and I needed to sell quickly. My friend recommended Steve to help me get the house sold. He was very knowledgeable about the local market and priced my house competitively. We were in contract in one week. Steve was able to negotiate the best price possible. He explained about the market and what was happening throughout the transaction. I felt comfortable because he kept me up to date about what was happening each step of the way. If you want an agent who knows the market, communicates well and pays attention to detail, I highly recommend Steve."
"The market is tough and having someone who knows the game well is going to make your life a whole lot easier. Steve sold our last home about a year ago (at full asking price) and when it came time to find a new home this year I knew who to go to. I managed to find my dream home, but unfortunately it was someone else dream home as well and we ended up in a bidding war. When things got a little crazy during the back and forth offers, Steve kept a cool head and eased the tension. In the end it all worked out and I give him credit for his guidance throughout it all. Like any good realtor Steve also has some great contacts, and the lender he connected me with was nothing short of amazing. All in all Steve knows the business well and I’m thankful and happy to have been able to work with him.”
"I met Steve at a networking meeting and was impressed by his low pressure approach to helping his clients buy and sell real estate. I was not ready to sell, but knew I would be “soon”. Steve hung in there with me for about 3 years while I got my house ready to sell, and he never expressed any frustration related to my slow pace. He was a great advisor through the whole process and provided contacts of subcontractors who did a great job for me. Once the house was ready, he listed it and sold it quickly for a very good price. He is a friendly, ethical, and knowledgeable Realtor. The bottom line is I will use Steve again if I need a Realtor and I refer my friends and family to him as they need one."
“Selling a home is always a stressful process, but Alice and Steve made the entire process simple and painless. Their extensive knowledge of the real estate market and superior marketing techniques not only found a buyer for my home but one willing to pay the asking price. To Alice and Steve, selling a home is not just a business transaction; it is a journey that requires support, confidence, flexibility, understanding, and most of all trust.”
“We would like to express our heartfelt thanks for a job well done! We know how much time and energy you both have spent on our behalf. Your professionalism and knowledge of our real estate market is what set you apart in our opinion. We want to take a moment to thank you for all of your help and assistance on selling our house and we look forward to working with you on the purchase of our new home.”

“ With Steven Markfeld and Alice Becker, I immediately felt comfortable that my apartment was in the right hands. Their professional and courteous manner could not be surpassed. They kept in close contact with me to keep me appraised of progress and developments. I would recommend the real estate services of Steve and Alice without reservation.”

“ Alice Becker and Steven Markfeld were the listing agents for the sale of our home in St. James. They listened to our needs and concerns, presented us with a comprehensive marketing plan, and worked diligently to execute that plan. They were able to secure a qualified buyer (with back up offers from other interested parties) in less than 6 weeks time. They did a thorough and professional job, and we were able to relax and feel confident that they would handle the sale of our home.”
Janet and Stan Singer
“As first time home buyers, we were definitely nervous, but Steve put us at ease from day one. He was extremely patient with us in explaining all the nuances which go with the whole process.”
Chandan and Rahki Mohapatra
“ Alice Becker and Steve Markfeld sold our house and we were pleased with their professionalism and competence. They did their homework and priced our house correctly. Considering the number of houses for sale in our neighborhood we were fortunate to have Ali and Steve on our side. As a result our house sold within 24 hours of being listed and for more than the asking price. What more could sellers ask for?”
Bonnie and Bob Childs
“After living in my home for forty-seven years, I needed to move and you sold my house in three weeks. When I shared my anxieties about selling with my friend, she told me about you. She said you are professional, knowledgeable, successful, and hard working real estate brokers. I also found you to be easy to talk to and understanding. I shared, my needs and concerns with you. You told me what to do to sell my house and what I should not do. You kept me informed as to what was happening during the selling process. You were always available if I needed to talk to you. I knew I was in good hands.”
“Steve Markfeld is a consummate professional. He knows the business extremely well. For both of us this was a stressful decision. Being with Steven and working with him was the best decision we made. He gives generously of his time, his knowledge, and himself. It’s been almost 4 months since we moved here and we are happily settled in our neighborhood.”

“ I would only refer a person I know is thorough, honest and caring. My extraordinary friend has been through many difficult times. I know that you will make things easy for her with the sale of her house”
"Thank you for all you did for us in helping us find our new home. You were courteous, helpful, made yourself readily available and your patience was never ending throughout the process. You really go above and beyond. It was truly a pleasure working with you as you made purchasing our first home a wonderful experience. If ever we can refer you, please know we will."

"I recently bought a house and had a wonderful time doing it!
Here is my situation, my daughter (and 5 kids) currently live in a rural county in Georgia. My wife and I decided that we wanted to move them to the Atlanta area, both for a richer and more diverse cultural environment, and to be closer to us.
So… I contacted Steve Markfeld of Prudential Georgia Realty to get his help in finding the right place for my daughter and family to live.
With Steve's help, we looked at a number of houses that seemed to meet our requirements, and then visited one in Gwinnett county. The first house we looked at was underwhelming, so we again looked through the listings for other houses in the same subdivision, and found one that looked just about perfect for the family.
The house was owned by Fannie Mae, which means that it was to be sold 'as is'. Steve was very helpful in educating me in the details of purchasing a house from Fannie Mae. I would never have figured it out myself!
In addition to his work on making the deal happen, Steve was very helpful in suggesting other resources such as closing attorney and house inspection services. Steve helped us negotiate a cash purchase for this house, and was expert in helping us get all the eyes dotted and tees crossed in closing the deal.
We had a closing a few weeks ago, and thanks to Steve's expertise, it was smooth as glass.
I thought you might like to hear some of the comments that our family made during this (sometimes difficult) transaction:
Granddaughter (10): "Steve is the greatest man in the world"
Grandpa: "Steve makes the client comfortable with choices"
Daughter: "This house is PERFECT. Finally we can spread out and each have a nice place for themselves"
Grandson: "He is great at fixing all the 'bumps in the road'"
Grandpa: "Steve helps 'lower the emotional temperature' at critical stages in the negotiations"
So: If you want a Realtor who listens well, will educate the buyer or seller in the issues needed to conclude a deal, call Steve Markfeld Prudential Georgia Realty"
"We give you FIVE STARS for your great service and follow-up and attention to detail work. Thank you for selling our house at a tough real estate market.
